What Are Non-Immigrant Sponsored Visas?
Non-Immigrant sponsored visas are for foreign nationals wishing to enter the United States on a temporary basis – for tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work, study, or other similar reasons. The problem with these sponsored visas are that they are temporary as previously mentioned, and applicants will have to adjust their status to achieve US Permanent Residency.
U.S. Nonimmigrant Sponsored Visas
USCIS only authorizes labor-based nonimmigrant visas for people in certain limited categories. Some examples include:
E-3. Australian nationals who will work in a specialty occupation that requires a bachelor’s degree (B.A.) or higher education.
H-1B. Workers in a specialty occupation that requires at least a B.A., or else it’s equivalent in on-the-job experience. This category also included distinguished fashion models.
H-1C. Registered nurses who will work in areas where health professionals are in short supply.
H-2A. Temporary agricultural workers who will fill positions that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has recognized as facing a labor supply shortage.
H-2B. Workers of various kinds who will perform temporary jobs for which there is a shortage of available, qualified U.S. workers.
O-1. People of extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics.
O-2. Essential support staff of people with O-1 visas.
P-1. Internationally recognized athletes and entertainers and their essential support staff.
R-1. Ministers and other workers of recognized religions.
While you might qualify for some of these options, let’s review an actual immigrant visa option you may not have considered.
